Activity-based Carbon Footprint Modelling (ACFM) is a customised computer database system to dissert all carbon footprint generating activities into constituent modules, and to analyse and report carbon footprints of the most sought intimate apparel products. This innovative and practical approach will allow maximal flexibility and cost effectiveness in carbon footprint disclosure that fits the characteristics and demand of today’s intimate apparel industry. Significant carbon reduction opportunities can be identified for the development of low carbon competitive advantages.
The system widely covers 10 common production modes of the intimate apparel industry. Assisted by a comprehensive user manual, one could effectively manage carbon emission of each production activity.
The ACFM was developed in response to the need of the intimate apparel industry by professional system analysts and programmers. Comparing with Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) approach, the ACFM possesses the advantages of simple, user-friendly, maximal flexibility and cost effectiveness in carbon footprint disclosure that fits the demand of the industry today. It is an innovative and unique methodology that dissected all carbon footprint generating activity of manufacturing process into constituent modules, and then to model,gather, analyse and disclosure their activity-based carbon footprints.
The technology will be disseminated through on-site coaching and software licensing.
